Hands-on Care Needed For My Husband - He is a Veteran. VA will p...

Part Time $15 – 30/hr Starts 03/17 Cleveland, OH
About who needs care: He is a Veteran. VA will pay any caregiver I choose. I've just been through 8 months of dealing with a caregiver the routine way through an agency. She was with us for about 8 months because I really tried to work with her when she was not coming on time, dressing inappropriately etc. I was hoping that eventually she could work out if i tried to get resolutions to her issues by working with her and the agency. Unfortunately, it only got worse. I do not want to have a revolving door of caregivers in my home. I have seen this all too often and want no parts of having different random people coming in my home. In 2018 my husband had surgery for brain cancer. After 28 days of radiation and 10 months of chemo he started getting more and more fatigued. He also has issues with pain in both hips, both knees, back has frequent loss of memory and cognitive problems. In spite of all this he can hold a decent conversation. He watches television most of the day. Due to his mobility issues the only time he leaves the house is when i take him to a medical appointment. He walks 100% of the time with a walker. I wash him up, change his pull up and feed him breakfast around 11-12. A routine day for a caregiver would be to come in the door with a facemask, remove shoes and wash hands. Mask must always be on when 6-8 feet of him. He has a weak immune system and will have to be hospitalized if he contracts covid19. Upon greeting him, the caregiver will put his Clear Eye drops in his eyes, then have him breathe in the spirometer at least 15 times or more. I usually have his lunch already prepared. So, when he's hungry they can warm it up. At times I may want the caregiver to prepare his lunch, but rarely. The caregiver should have him use his walker, walk around though the kitchen back to his lift chair at least twice. Due to his extreme fatigue, he will probably have to rest in between each walk around. He is able to get up from his lift chair, stand and use his urinal or go to the bathroom. He may need a little assistance due to his weakness. Unless he has a problem with diarrhea, he won't need any changing or assistance of his pullup. Before leaving do his eyedrops again. This is a simple typical day. About the care needs: Don't need anything special but someone to just do they're job and be on time. Plain and simple. I've listed everything you need to know on previous page. Services needed include: meal preparation, errands / shopping, light housekeeping, feeding, bathing / dressing, and mobility assistance.
